Good to Know

The print profile includes two different versions of the piranha blossom: one with dots and one with stars.
Additionally, the grass and the lower blossom part also comes in two versions: one using Breakaway Support Filament and another using manual supports. I recommend using the version with Breakaway Support.

 

 

The Screw Self Tapping Screw Version – same as the Print Profiles - is made for self tapping screws as listet in the Bill Off Material List!

The most amazing model in "Games of the 80" contest without a doubt. I'm in 3D printing from nearly 5 years, so 20-30 hours print on old-school printers is nothing special to me. But 82 hours on Bambu Lab printers?!? Man, are you giving Bambu users real lesson about our hobby! :D I wanna see likes to actual print ratio ;)

Thank you! :) Actually, the print profile includes two different versions of the piranha blossom: one with dots and one with stars. Additionally, the grass part also comes in two versions: one using Breakaway Support Filament and another using manual supports. I recommend using the version with Breakaway Support. So the print will be around 50-60h. :)

thanks form your support :) - I know it's still a lot of time - but I think it's worth. :) I printed already 14 of it. One way to reduce the print time is to use for the leafs, bottom, pot, gras and the blossom libs a 0.6 nozzle.

so I’m having this unintended crazy wrinkle effect on the back of the large stem. not sure what’s causing it, but i dunno if it’s no support or print speed

hi the steam needs only support - on the build plate the rest is desigend to work without. the angles on the bottom part with steeper angles seams to be fine right ? what printer u are using ?

p1s. the support settings provided on the print only support the holes for alignment to the earth component. this is using Bambu studio.

Replying to @nathaniel.a.edg :
I noticed you’re using the same printer that I often use. I’ve had success printing 40 stems without any issues, so I don’t think the problem lies with the model, especially since the angles are steep enough not to require supports. This is also evident from the fact that there are no issues further down where the angles are flatter. The model should be supported only on the build plate, just as specified in the print profile. One possible cause might be that the build chamber got too hot, affecting the cooling. (It’s summer, after all.) If I recall correctly, the is a Auto Colling in the filament settings. https://wiki.bambulab.com/en/software/bambu-studio/auto-cooling Have you tried printing without the printer cover? This might have caused the issue, or there could have been a filament quality problem at that spot.

The grass is just BARELY too big for the A1 Mini. Everything else fits. Any chance on making a slight adjustment to the grass and make it fit on the A1 Mini?

hi, thanks to @Saymee1 he added a a1 mini version today. I may going to develop a smaller grassvariant :). but as everything is modular designed and plant work with the pot only you can print it now and add the grass part later.

Version: Dot Blossom - Breakaway Support Filament
Printed almost everything perfectly, except this leaf part 3. First i printed all the plate and the leaf in the upper right support came off and that specific part failed to complete. (other leaves were perfect). Then i decided to print the same leaf again by itself and the support fall off exactly on the same layer. Not sure what im doing wrong. But i believe the plate is vibrating too much causing the support and the leaf get loose from the plate.

What you could try is to change the value of the z-hop to a bigger value and maybe slow down the print speed. if it works please let me know.

Amazing Model! Everything came out fitting perfectly together, and the self tap screws were very easy to assemble. I ended up putting a dock extender I got off amazon through it so I can hook it up to the TV.

@hires2k which model is preferred, with self tapping screws or threaded inserts? I start to print the first profile, but would like to use the threaded inserts, is that possible?

hi Olli he’s it is - use this profile. As it contains all versions (and a1 mini) you don’t have to print all plates. you need to select wich type of the head you prefer( dots or stars), wich size (large or small for the steam and pot), if you use break away support pla for some parts (I recommend) and how many leafs you like.

thanks a lot, I saw the all in one profile to late. I printed allready with the PLA Support Profile some parts, which one I have to change for thread inserts. cheers

Replying to @Ollli :
the good thing is if you just printed this 3 plates only the libs need a screw - so it’s not to late to switch to the threaded insert version. what you could try to not reprint the libs is to use the m3 machine screw. in theory the M3 machiche screw could fit.

Amazing overall print and its my favorite,not sure what is the magnet for but here are the results. Notes: the smaller leaves hardly fit on the bigger leaves (i used a heat gun). The grass i think it needs something extra, because of the hard finish of the surface plate. (maybe its the plate i used and i should just stick with the regular one). Amazing job i love it.

Awesome Model. I wanted to thank you for doing a great job and sharing it with the community!!! raelly really apreciate that. I have a question about the screws. I'm printing the version: The Screw Self Tapping Screw Version. I just need 2 packs of : BT3x10 SHCS Self Tapping Screw (20PCS) - AA200 and a pack of: M3x6x0.5 Carbon Steel Flat Washer (100PCS) - AC004 Is this correct? To assemble it, basically ( i just need to) put a washer on the screw and screw it in following the assembly guide?. Thanks

Looks Super Cool. yes exactly and to magnets 5x2mm. Each screw get a washer except the on to secure the head on steam. in theory instead of the magnets you could use a small peace of double sided tape to secure the removable dot (number 1 - behind ist access to the screw for secure the head)
